Welch Allyn AED10 End of Life in March 2014
Welch Allyn has announced that from now on no repairs will be carried out to the Welch Allyn AED10 units with serial number NA043416 and previous produced units, and training units for AED10 with serial NB015377 and previous produced units.
For all other Welch Allyn AED10 models the repair support shall expire on March 31, 2014. The supply of accessories such as batteries and electrodes for the Welch Allyn AEDs will end from this date. Until then, these accessories are available at the following link: http://www.aedexpert.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=welch+allyn
Following our report of the Welch Allyn AED 10 being taken out of production (http://www.aedblog.co.uk/?p=8) we have been informed that the Welch Allyn Trainer has suffered a similar fate. The Welch Allyn Trainer cannot be ordered anymore and won’t be on stock.
However, the Welch Allyn AED 10 can still be ordered. Welch Allyn is distributing the remaining European stock, but is not replenishing this stock with newly manufactured units.
Articles for training purposes for the Welch Allyn Trainer, like training electrode pads, can still be ordered for the time being.
We recently learnt that the Welch Allyn AED10 is not being manufactured anymore. As soon as the current stock will be terminated, this type of AED won’t be for sale anymore.
De Welch Allyn AED10 was especially popular with GP practices. Unfortunately, the device had a number of recalls and for a while the production of this AED was halted.
In November 2009 the production started up again, this time in the Zoll plants, instead of the Welch Allyn own plants.
The final production stop didn’t come as a surprise: Last November there were reports of the Welch Allyn AED10 being discontinued on the American Market. At that moment there were no indications that production would be discontinued elsewhere.
Accessories for the Welch Ally AD10 will be available though the usual retail channels.
